Charming Breezes - Au Naturel

Charming Breezes, a fast, fun charm pack table runner quilt pattern, needed a springy sample made up so who am I to argue : )

This 5 inch precut squares quilt pattern is one of my favorites to make up so it was no chore at all to whip up a new runner using Au Naturel from Wilmington Prints. 

Actually, I made two at one time using only 20 squares, a little bit of background, and some border fabric.


The only difference between these "almost twins" tablerunners is the border fabric. While I really like them both, I believe I'm partial to the lighter border. 

Au Naturel has been such a joy to make with. Something about the colors and prints that I really enjoy.

The quilting is organic wavy lines done with my regular sewing machine using a walking foot.

For the most part the quilting lines echo each other across the table runner but vary a little bit here and there where I felt maybe the lines were straightening out a little too much. 

When doing quilting like this I lengthen the stitch length to 3.0 to 3.5, loosen tension a tad, and lighten pressure foot pressure 2-5 clicks.

The movement that this gentle flowing quilting adds suits this pattern so perfectly.
Love it!

The Charming Breezes quilt pattern offers three lengths - 40", 60", and 80".

Quilted table runner quilts make the sweetest little quilt roll.
